Two items here:
1) I opened up Bloglines this morning to see that this humble bloglet has reached the 200 subscriber threshold, which is incredibly gratifying to me. Thanks to all who have made it whatever it is. As I've said before, some of the most interesting things found here are the product of the ideas and suggestions you have sent my way.
2) Point Topic reckons there are 164m broadband lines worldwide at the end of Q1, representing sequential growth of c.14m lines, or just over 9%.
